Amon is one of the primary protagonists in the manga Devilman Grimoire. Amon was a demon from the Beast Tribe and was considered to be one of the strongest demons ever known. At the beginning of the series after being accidentally summoned by Miki Makimura, Amon took over the body of the wounded Akira Fudo. This was an inversion of the usual formula that had Akira's personality dominating over Amon.
Amon resembles a more feral version of both the manga and anime design for Devilman with bluish green skin, black fur on the lower half of his body and head, eyes with red pupils and yellow sclera, red markings on his torso, abdomen, and face and red blades on his arms. He had small wings on the sides of his head, sharp fangs, black wings that spread out from his back with a red interior and a spaded tail. After taking over Akira's body, Amon shows his distinctive intimidating eyes with the outlines becoming very bold. In this form he has Akira's brown hair while wearing a black long sleeved shirt with a white belt over pants that range from different colors including blue and red even in school.
Amon is a brutal and savage demon who strikes against all those that stands against him whether human or demon. Possessing Akira Fudo caused the human's subconsciousness to influence him, preventing Amon from killing Miki. Amon appears to have grown attached to Miki, learning love and justice from her and even falling in love with her. However it was this love that caused him to turn his back on these lessons of justice in order to protect her from any possible threats whether human or demon killing them in cold blood.
Abilities and Powers
Amon is easily one of the most powerful demons in the series, able to single handedly slaughter an entire group of demons without much effort. He can control his own anatomy, able to change his tissue into whatever is suitable such as growing blades on his arms, small heads inside his veins to fend off microscopic invaders, or wings on his back that allow him to fly. He can also expel energy from any part of his body in defense or offense. Near the end of the series, he was able to assume a giant form.
